Court for Way in Which
Tobacco Trust Case
Was Handled.
Kaielgh. N. C. October L?To-nirht
Colonel Roosevelt delivered the last
scheduled speech 01 the longest, cam?
paign tour ever ur.'itrtuken by a pres?
idential candidate. The Auditorium
here, which has space for 7.000, was
ciowded. Colonel Roosevelt had made
nearly a store of speeches during the
daj, and he was hoarse and weary. He
talked (or an nour, then brought his
speecn to a close with tne words with
which had opened his campaign: "Wts
stand al A'mageddon and wo battle
lor the LwrsL"
In this state, with lta heavy interests
In the tobacco industry. Colonel Roose?
velt spoke of the American Tobacco
Company, saying thai when auch a
finding v. as reached as that handed
down by the Supreme Court in the
tobacco trust suit, a teceiver ahould
be put in charge of the business.
"our opponents in both the old par?
ties," he said, "have nothing to pro?
pose In regard to the regulation of
trusts except just what has already
been done. They propose nothing but
modifications of the present system.
No such modifications would change
the tobacco trust in a way which
would amount to anything.
Colonel's Proposal.
"My proposal is to do no damage to
business, but to punish crooked man?
agers o' business. Such a showing as
was set forth in the Supreme Court
decision in the tobacco trust case
."hould cause the immediate appoint?
ment of a receiver for that trust. Just
as would be done in the case of a na?
tional bank.
"In a case like that of the tobacco;
trust the government could at once:
put in a receiver to run it until every-'
thing which it had been decided wasi
wrong had been done away with and'
every objectionable feature removed.'
Then, and not until then, could the1
old owners come back. And they
would come back with the knowledge
that if soch acts were repealed they
would suffer just as Mr. Morse, the
banker, suffered."
Colgate! Roosevelt said he favored the
elimination or the middle man In poli?
tics, just aa he advocated such a
change in business methods, particu?
larly In the caas of middle men who'
handle the producta of the farm.
"The boas Is the middle man in poll- j
tica," he said. 'The boas is perfectly!
happy if he can name both sets of;
candidates. Tou can do ail the voting
you want to and he comes out ahead."
Colonel Roosevelt left here to-night
toff New York. His trip across North j
Carolina from Asheville to Raleigh j
was one of the busiest of his tour..
He had expected to make only a ?
speeches, but at almost every station ;
arrangements had been made for an
address and a crowd was waiting.
Tha speeches came in such rapid;
succession that Colonel Roosevelt's!
physician decreed it must not go on. if
he were to bo rea p?nal Die for the!
Colonel's condition. Word was sent
to the engineer that no more stops.
should be made except at the points j
previously on tbs schedule, and tele-1
grama were forwarded to various'
places at which It was known Colonel ?
Roosevelt was expected to apeak. At
several of these points the crowds as- 1
aembled without regard to these noti- j
ficatlons, and as the train whisked by I
Colonel Roosevelt caught a blurred .'
picture of the people, the sound of
cheers and a few notes from the band. 1
